Hi, I’m 66 and I’ve been told that as we age, we can expect a rapid decline in physical attributes, especially those that determine performance in endurance sports. There are many questions we athletes typically have about this topic:
For the last week a friend of my was dealing with a rash that started on the left underarm to the elbow…. then forearm and then wrist. Well, you get the picture… it was spreading. Of course she fell into automatic pilot and reached for Benadryl Gel…. and it continued to spread. When talking with a good friend she said, “Have you tried Lavender Oil or Frankincense Oil?
She used 2 cotton balls – On the first she put lavender oil w/ coconut oil and the second frankincense with coconut oil. (She didn’t know if one was better than the other so… she tried one on each arm.)
She rubbed that stuff from armpit to wrist. The very next day the rash was 100% better and by day 2 it was GONE! Much better than the Benadryl Gel.
She found on the Internet… .
“Anti-Itch –Whether you’re battling a rash or poison ivy, applying some peppermint oil mixed with lavender oil is certain to cool and soothe any itch.”
She was sooooo glad she had the Lavender Oil, Frankincense Oil and Coconut Oil ready to use. Next time she will use the Peppermint Oil and save her Frankincense!
My opinion is that you should call your doctor if you have any kind of rash, especially if you have a fever too. If the rash isn’t a symptom of any serious disease you could try essential oils to reduce the discomfort. You may also discuss this option with your doctor.

An essential oil is a concentrated hydrophobic liquid containing volatile aroma compounds from plants. Essential oils are also known as volatile oils and ethereal oils or simply as the oil of the plant from which they were extracted. An oil is “essential” in the sense that it contains the “essence of” the plant’s fragrance—the characteristic fragrance of the plant from which it is derived. The term essential used here does not mean indispensable as with the terms essential amino acid or essentila fatty acid which are so called since they are nutritionally required by a given living organism.
Over 3,000 varieties of volatile aromatic compounds have been identified to date. The nature of an essential oil varies from plant to plant, within botanical families, and from species to species. The delicate ratio of aromatic constituents found in any given essential oil are what make it unique and give it specific benefits.
Even with pure essential oils the composition of the oil can vary depending on the time of day, season, geographic location, method and duration of distillation, year grown, and the weather, making every step of the production process a critical determinant of the overall quality of the essential oil product.
Essential oils can be used for a wide range of emotional and physical wellness applications. They can be used as single essential oils or in complex essential oil blends depending on user experience and desired benefit. Want to learn how to use essential oils?

A friend of me told about using Lavender essential oil for sound sleep.
She has used it for approximately the last 2 weeks, having been applying Lavender to her big toes when she goes to bed. It started when she was a little stressed and having trouble relaxing. She just took the Lavender Touch down across the underside of each toe about twice. And within about 10 minutes, she started to feel as if her eyes were getting heavy.
And since the Touch was beside her bed, she just continued doing it. What she has discovered has been cumulative.
First thing she noticed and on the very first night, instead of waking 5 or 6 times during the night..she slept thru. Probably the first time in a decade. She thought at first she may have been really tired and forgot that she was up and over to the bathroom, so the next night, she decided that when she awoke and went over to the bathroom, she would leave herself a little marker. She was up one time. Not many times
Next night, same deal, she figured it was something she ate or didn’t eat or drank or didn’t drink, slept straight thru.
And at first she didn’t notice anything, but then she realized that she *WAS* noticing something. She was noticing that she didn’t get that dead in the head feeling mid afternoon.
So she is going to continue to use this little miracle. She can’t even see that she has used any of the oil from the Touch applicator! This should last a long time, and so inexpensive. It also stopped the wild dreams she was having. So, if you could sleep more soundly and stop waking up in the middle of the night, why not try it?
